The University of Antwerp stands shoulder to shoulder with the victims of the Russian war violence in Ukraine. UAntwerpen wants to offer the support that is needed, both to Ukrainian universities and to members of the Russian academic community who strongly dissaprove the aggression against Ukraine.

At the moment, there is a great need for the reception of war refugees from Ukraine. UAntwerpen is setting up a fund to provide shelter and assistance close by, to students, academics and their families.

How can you help?

You can contribute as a company or as a private individual. There are two ways to donate:

  • By bank transfer to bank account number BE42 7310 4624 7854 in the name of 'Universiteit Antwerpen'. Be sure to mention 'fiscaal attest' (tax certificate) and your preferred destination, in this case 'support Ukraine', in the communication field.
  • By online payment where you can immediately indicate 'Help Ukrainian Universities'  as your preferred destination.
